PUTTING THE POWER OF GENAI & TURBOTAX TECH INNOVATIONS IN CUSTOMER HANDS WITH INTUIT ASSIST
From DIY to Full Service experiences, TurboTax customers will start to experience the streamlined, confidence boosting benefits of Intuit’s new generative AI-powered financial assistant, Intuit Assist. Intuit Assist is the only AI-powered financial assistant that uses the combination of decades of domain expertise, rich data, current tax code, Large Language Models, and the TurboTax proprietary tax knowledge engine to provide a streamlined experience and give customers complete confidence in an accurate tax outcome. Within TurboTax products, Intuit Assist combines powerful and relevant contextual tax data sets, with the power of Intuit’s AI-driven expert platform and the accelerated investment the company has made in GenAI to deliver game-changing new experiences:
- Personalized Financial Assistant: Regardless of which TurboTax product you choose, from DIY to Live Assisted to Full Service, TurboTax is setting out to make sure customers don’t feel alone during or after their tax filing experience. Whether they choose to get started by uploading their tax data and documents, connecting with one of our experts, or answering some questions about their tax situation, Intuit’s AI-powered document checklist will help customize the experience to only what’s relevant for the customer. It will enable TurboTax and human tax experts to leverage the power of AI to provide fast, personalized answers to their questions, offer tailored insights for their situation, and even deliver recommendations on how to best take action in the future. For instance, when a filer uploads their W-2, TurboTax will proactively identify other likely situations for the customer to review, such as confirming another likely source of income, or a common credit for tax filers like them. TurboTax then surfaces these to the customer so nothing is missed. If the same filer chooses to have a tax expert do their taxes instead, the tax expert is supported with Intuit Assist’s data-backed guidance.
- Real-Time Accuracy Checks: As a customer goes through the DIY and Virtual Assisted filing process, Intuit Assist will check for accuracy and completeness along the way. For instance, Intuit Assist will surface missed information, and customers will get guidance for resolving the mistake while they work. This innovation cuts down on document reviews and filer mistakes, addressing them while the customer is entering their information.
- Deep Explanations: Thorough and contextual explanations give customers confidence in their tax outcome by offering a detailed breakdown of their comparative numbers from last year and this year. To enable this, we are using a Large Language Model (LLM) trained extensively by our tax experts to understand the nuances of a customer’s tax situation and offer meaningful insights for the individual. If customers are stuck in their return or choose to fully hand their taxes over, we will guide them to a human tax expert who can provide fast answers, personalized insights, and recommendations for their specific situation.
- Spanish language experience: Spanish speaking filers who have been searching for and prefer to have a comprehensive Spanish language filing experience will be able to choose to have the TurboTax Online and Live Assisted product, as well as the onboarding experience for Full Service experiences translated to Spanish across all states. Using Intuit’s GenAI and LLMs, multiple TurboTax products now offer on-the-fly Spanish translations, including on mobile and desktop. Spanish filers will be able to engage across the tax filing experience in Spanish, including help content and explanations to better understand specific topics.
All TurboTax Live and TurboTax Online products will be available on November 30, 2023, in English and Spanish at www.TurboTax.com, the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. See product pricing for product forms availability.
